Safety: up to nine airbags and advanced assistance systems

› The FABIA MONTE CARLO offers excellent levels of active and passive safety
› Up to nine airbags and five-star Euro NCAP test rating
› Available with Travel Assist, Park Assist and Manoeuvre Assist for the first time
› ISOFIX anchors and Top Tether anchor points for optimal installation of child seats

Mladá Boleslav, 15 February 2022 – Just like the other models in the range, the sporty MONTE CARLO variant features up to nine airbags and is one of the safest vehicles in its segment. As the fourth-generation ŠKODA FABIA is now built on the MQB-A0 modular platform, the car’s active and passive safety has increased even further. Assistance systems such as Travel Assist and Park Assist, which were previously reserved for higher‑tier vehicle categories, are now making their FABIA MONTE CARLO debut.

For the new FABIA, ŠKODA AUTO has fully exploited the possibilities the MQB-A0 modular platform has to offer. In addition to the body’s high level of torsional stiffness due to the large proportion of high-strength, ultra‑high‑strength and specially hardened hot-formed steels, the MQB-A0 also allows the use of assistance systems that were previously reserved for higher vehicle segments.

Travel Assist includes several assistance systems and Park Assist increases comfort

When equipped with the optional Travel Assist feature, the FABIA MONTE CARLO provides automatic support with longitudinal and lateral steering. The system can activate several assistance systems at the touch of a button. At speeds of up to 210 km/h, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) automatically adjusts the speed of the car to that of vehicles ahead. By performing corrective steering inputs if needed, the integrated system Lane Assist helps – as its name suggests – to keep the vehicle in lane. Travel Assist uses Hands-on Detect to check whether the driver is touching the steering wheel. The improved Side Assist feature is another optional extra. This warns the driver of vehicles up to 70 m away that want to overtake or are in the car’s blind spot. Park Assist lends a hand with parking manoeuvres. It works at speeds of up to 40 km/h displaying suitable parallel and bay parking spaces and, if desired, can take over the driver’s steering work. Manoeuvre Assist detects an obstacle in front of or behind the car during parking and applies the brakes automatically. Traffic Sign Recognition and Front Assist with Predictive Pedestrian and Cyclist Protection are also available.

Up to nine airbags and five-star rating in Euro NCAP tests

The FABIA MONTE CARLO comes with airbags for the driver and front passenger, curtain airbags, and front side airbags as standard. A knee airbag for the driver and rear side airbags are optional extras to further enhance safety. Standard equipment also includes ISOFIX anchors and Top Tether anchor points on the front passenger seat (in the EU) and on the outer rear seats. In the reference test for crash safety conducted by the independent European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), the Czech carmaker’s entry-level model achieved the maximum rating of five stars and, at 78% of the maximum number of points achievable, secured the best score among the compact cars tested in 2021.
